PGA Tour’s New Schedule Helps Mayakoba Golf Classic

The PGA Tour officially announced their 2013 schedule earlier this week.  Suprisingly, one of the most popular events with competitors and their families, the Mayakoba Golf Classic, was not on the 2013 schedule.  Does this mean that El Camaleon no longer hosts the Only PGA Tour Event in Mexico?  Fortunately for all of us golf fans, it is just a quirk in the new schedule.

Over the next few days, Tee’d Off Tee Times will look at the new 2013 schedule and give you a sneak peek at the totally revised 2013/2014 Fed-Ex Cup schedule (not to be confused with the abbreviated 2013 schedule) and we’ll tell you when the next Mayakoba Golf Classic will be held.

Teed Off Tee Times Lists the 12 Best Golf Courses in Cancun/Riviera Maya

Each day between now and the end of October, Tee’d Off Tee Times will list each of the Top 12 Golf Courses in the Cancun/Riviera Maya destination.

The criteria we use is not scientific and the difference between 12 and 1 is really not that much.  Personal preference, prestige in playing, designer, course design and layout, course conditioning and guest service were all taken into consideration.

And now, coming in at #1 on our list of the 12 best courses is El Camaleon Mayakoba. Host to the PGA Tour Mayakoba Golf Classic and located within the tourist destination of Mayakoba, this 7,044 yard layout is the first Greg Norman designed course to open in Mexico and boasts 3 separate environmental changes (jungle, mangrove and ocean front) and two holes along the Mexican Caribbean.

The 7th and 15th holes play right to the edge of the Caribbean Sea with the sand and the spray punctuating the breeze.  The course is a part of the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program for Golf Courses.  Also on property is the first and only Jim McLean Golf School in Mexico.

To play El Camaleon Mayakoba or any of the other 12 courses in the destination, please call us on our toll-free line at 1-855-833-3633 or visit us online at http://teedoffteetimes.com

Eco Friendly Yucatan Peninsula Golfing Will Enhance Your Vacation

Golfing is a great passion for a lot of us and sometimes the reason for that is how much we love being outside. If we can be outside in a gorgeous environment, then so much the better. That’s why Mexico can make a great choice if you want to do some exotic golfing in glorious locations. Let’s take a peek at a couple of terrific options you might not have heard about before.

For golfing, a lot of the best that Mexico has to offer is going to be located on the Yucatan Peninsula, with options like Cancun golf courses. The reason for this is that this is the eastern coast of Mexico where there is a lot of white sandy beach to run on and plenty of tropical jungles or even ancient Mayan ruins to explore. Oh, and you wouldn’t want to forget the sparkling sapphire waters of the Caribbean right there for you to scuba, kite board, water ski or just go swimming in. The great part about this section of Mexico is that the people here value the preservation of nature. They go out of their way to keep things beautiful.

If you have never heard of the island of Cozumel, this is a small island off the coast of the Yucatan and located in Quintana Roo. The place is beautiful and this is where a lot of people go to enjoy a real island paradise. A recent article on Ecplaza {http://www.ecplaza.net/news/13/73787/cozumel_island_celebrates.html} shows that this is, in fact, the home of a unique golf tournament. The Annual Cozumel Island Golf Tournament is now in its 3rd year and looking like a great place to hit the green. Plenty of challenges await you and so do sights of mangrove forest and jungles, too.

A place you just might have heard of, due to its connection with the PGA Tour, is Mayakoba. A recent Fox News Latino article (http://latino.foxnews.com/latino/sports/2011/02/23/lorena-ochoa-greg-norman-design-golf-course-mexico/) shows that Mexican golfer Lorena Ochoa is going to be helping to design a golf course in this ecotourism hot spot. Once that is built you are not going to want to miss tee times here, for sure. After all, Ochoa was the top female golfer for 3 years straight so she knows what she is doing.

As you can see, Mexico has plenty for golf fans that is great golfing and eco friendly. You can check out Cozumel or Playa del Carmen golf courses or even savor some fun at Mayakoba, the choice is yours. One thing is for sure, though: the Yucatan is a tremendous place to tee off if you want to be surrounded by tropical majesty of the finest kind. Mexico is the place for golfers who love sunshine and care about natural beauty.
